WatchDirectory automatically starts your .bat or .cmd file when the directory contents that this program is monitoring changes (a file or directory is added, deleted or changed). Some example uses for this program: Automatically backup files that are created in a directory. Automatically FTP modified files from a directory to an FTP server/web-site. Automatically compile sources that arrive in a directory (Auto Make). Synchronizing 2 directories. The bat or command file that is executed receives all information on what has changed on the command line and in environment-variables. Basically you can do anything you want with this information. Several example bat-files to get you started are included in the online help. Other highlights: Efficiently monitors directories: watchDirectory receives a notification from Windows when the monitored folder changes. Easy to start automatically at system start-up. Can be configured to run as a Windows Service using tools like SrvAny or FireDaemon. A limited freeware version is also available. The freeware version allows you to monitor 1 local directory.
